Are you looking to integrate / refresh your university studies but you don't have either the funds of the time required to subscribe and attend to university courses? Then you may as well have a look at Coursera and see if you are interested in any of their free courses. Let's have a look at their mission statement first:
We are a social entrepeneurship company that partners with the top universities in the world to offer courses online for anyone to take, free. We envision a future where the top universities are educating not only thousands of students, but millions. Our technology enables the best professors to teach tens or hundreds of thousands of students.
And yeah, is that simple. You subscribe, you add a specific course to your list and then you wait for it to begin! I have subscribed to a couple, but the start date is still to be confirmed, so I've found one which is interesting (Machine Learning), although I already did some of this in my MsC. Well, thought it was a good choice to get the student cap back onto my head and give it a go! So far (the course started on Monday, and yes you can still join) the format seems to be quite good, with plenty of video lectures / forums and studying materials (all free, of course). I'll tell you more when I've delved a bit deeper in it. There are plenty of subjects to choose from, and not limited to Computer Science. The courses are organized by well knows university (Stamford and Princeton, just to throw a couple of names in) and yeah, you won't get a degree this way! But if you have one already then it may be just a good way to keep your brain in shape and your knowledges up to date. Have you tried it?
... ce l'ho fatta!! Ho finito :D Ora chiamatemi pure signor Dottore Magistrale :P
Con questo titolo in inglese macchernubbonico, voglio congratularmi con Mosè e Alessandro per aver meritatamente conseguito, in data odierna, la Laurea Specialistica in Ingegneria Informatica. In poche parole, essi hanno oggi abbandonato il mondo dei comuni esseri umani per trasferirsi in pianta stabile nel mondo dei nerd lavoratori! Congratulazioni vivissime e in bocca al lupo per il futuro! Qualche dettaglio in più nella versione estesa della news.
Che dire ... oggi un grande si è laureato per la seconda volta, conseguendo la Laurea Specialistica in Ingegneria Informatica! Di chi sto parlando? Ma del mitico Monte! Complimenti vivissimi, ora nessuno ti potrà più chiamare n00b :D
